TAMPA (April 4, 2018) – Tampa Downtown Partnership is pleased to announce the appointment of Lynda Remund, SHRM-CP, as Acting President and CEO of the Tampa Downtown Partnership. The Executive Committee’s unanimous decision places Remund in the Partnership’s top leadership role for a one-year term in a transformative and exciting time of change for both the Partnership and Tampa’s Downtown.
“After taking the reigns as Interim President and CEO in January, Lynda has distinguished herself by truly embracing her leadership qualities,” said Mickey Jacob, Chairman of the Tampa Downtown Partnership. “Her ability to support and lead a collaborative work environment while effectively managing the Partnership’s strategic initiatives has proven to myself, the Board and staff that Lynda is the best person for this role.”
In her role, Remund manages the Partnership’s organizational structure, vision and mission, facilitates the corporation’s strategic initiatives, and works with Downtown stakeholders to ensure Tampa’s urban core is a vibrant and diverse neighborhood. Recognizing the growth of Tampa’s urban core, Remund led efforts to expand the Special Services District (SSD) into Tampa Heights and in February the Tampa Downtown Partnership received approval from City Council to proceed in seeking the boundary expansion. The approval marks the first change in the SSD boundaries since its creation in 1994.
“I’m very excited about the momentum we’ve had and the direction the Partnership is heading,” said Remund. “I’m honored to serve as the Acting President and CEO for the Tampa Downtown Partnership and am energized to work with our staff, Board, and Executive Committee on executing our vision and mission as laid out in our strategic initiatives.”
Remund joined the Partnership in 2000 as the Director of District Operations providing her with significant experience and knowledge of Downtown Tampa. She holds a SHRM-CP certification in human resources, is currently a member of the International Downtown Association and serves on the Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce’s Board of Directors, as well as the Visit Tampa Bay Advisory Committee.
